Librarians are here to help. If you require assistance, please don't hesitate to contact Caroline, the Moodle/OER Librarian!
Most of our electronic resources are governed by license agreements which restrict use to Kwantlen Polytechnic University students and employees and to individuals who use library facilities on a walk in basis. In order to ensure that a user is a Kwantlen student or employee, we use a proxy server which prompts the user to enter their unique Kwantlen ID and password. If the ID that is entered is not recognized, the user will not gain access to the resource.
You should not save PDF files of articles and upload them to your Moodle site. Instead, use the linking instructions set out on this guide to create permalinks that automatically direct students to access the resources through our proxy server.
The Kwantlen library uses eZproxy as our proxy server.
Things might sound complicated, but with a little help, it can be quite easy! Contact email@example.com if you require any clarification.
***Always test your links from off campus***
Most of our databases allow for their resources to be put on course sites. Most publishers call this e-reserve or course packs. If you want to know for sure whether you can provide a link to an article, look closely at the description page for the database that article came from. You can find the description pages by searching our list of research databases.
You can also follow up to date copyright news at our Copyright Guide.
